Motel Association, NZ, Bay of Islands & Northland

Discover golden beaches, secluded coves, tranquil harbours, warm waters, dramatic coastlines and spectacular forests, all abundant in Northland and the Bay of Islands.

Northland has a unique history that ties both Maori and non-Maori people together; historical sites can be found throughout the region including Waitangi, Russell and the Hokianga.

The Bay of Islands is a marine playground with a multitude of ways to enjoy being in, on and under the water. Incredible marine life, including dolphins, can be found playing amongst the 144 islands, the most famous of which is the Hole in the Rock.

A number of celebrated artists and craftspeople live and work here and visits to their studios and galleries can be woven into the scrumptious food and wine trails the north is fast gaining a reputation for. These trails make it easy to experience the delicious fresh local produce, seafood, gourmet goods and award winning wines available across the entire region.
